Point to Ponder
Hello from the Holiday Hooey's;
  • Christmas is a special time of year filled with wonderment and excitement for young and old alike.

  • Christmas is also a hectic time with frantic gift shopping, travel, and trying to fit in all the family and friends.
  • Remember the reason for the season and stop long enough to take a breath once in awhile and hug those you love.
We wanted to send a quick note to our friends, family, colleagues and clients we've been able to connect with over this past year.Thanks to each of you for the gift you've been in our lives and our business adventures.
2009 has been a year mixed with success, challenges, meeting new friends, saying goodbye to some clients and welcoming new ones.
Irene and I have done a fair amount of traveling since this time last year. We met in Paris when I was returning from speaking in Mumbai, last January. We had our 'official' honeymoon in Mexico in March and celebrated my 60th in Cuba last April (that is actually white sand in the background of the picture... smile). We worked together building a big deck and creating an outside garden at our place in Egremont.
We saw Irene expand her Vitrak Creative web design business and added new products and services to my Ideas At Work!. We celebrated our 2nd honeymoon in Vegas in October the day after our 1st anniversary. In two weeks we'll be heading south for January to visit our daughter, Amanda, who is teaching in Australia. Whew!  Along the way we shared laughs, love and even a tear or two. 
In spite of a challenge or two along the way and the odd business disappointment, this has been a wonderful year together. And we have been able to share it in part with each of you. That is a blessing in itself.
We wanted to send our warmest Christmas greetings to you, your families and co-workers and best wishes for a prosperous 2010 for each of us.
I sent this out to a few of you on my email list, so accept this second one as a double helping of best wishes.
Bob & Irene Hooey

My friend, Robert sent this along and I wanted to share it with you.
